When you or a loved when gets ill, it’s often necessary to take time off work. An employee who takes time off work to care for their own or a family member’s serious health condition is given some employment protections under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). The FMLA can provide leave for up to 12 weeks, and the leave can be continuous or intermittent. The FMLA also secures employees’ employment while they are out on FMLA Leave, and prevents employers from interfering with or retaliating against employees who use FMLA Leave. If you or a loved one believes they have been discriminated or retaliated against on the basis of their use of FMLA, contact me, an Ohio employment attorney, to discuss your situation in more detail and see how I can help!
